Chester Brown's zombie love for Toronto culture

Toronto’s Live With Culture campaign has enlisted the talent of graphic novelist Chester Brown for a series of ads bigging up its efforts to spread the word about Toronto’s art scene. For the ads, Brown has created an ongoing story about a zombie attack on Canada’s biggest city, one sensitive zombie with a thing for live theatre, and a young woman who finds herself strangely attracted to him.

The series is running in the free weekly Now magazine. See a sample below. (And feel free to fill the comments with wisecracks about Toronto’s culture being fit for zombies….)
